Today’s poll: Should all private schools be subject to Ofsted inspections?

Michael Gove has said it would send a “very powerful signal” to private schools if Ofsted was given new powers to directly inspect all schools in the fee-paying sector for the first time. What do you think?

    SchoolsImprove What difference would it make? Judgements would be arguably be political not educational, although seems to be the Gove way

    Assuming you think Ofsted actually does a good job, additional layer of bureaucracy which isn’t needed.

    SchoolsImprove If you’re going to do something that’s wrong, you should do it to everybody? That the logic?
